Marmot Helium MemBrain Gear Review

A review of the Marmot Helium MemBrain three-season waterproof down sleeping bag from Canoeroots & Family Camping magazine.

Larger fill-counts mean higher loft, lighter weight and greater durability and the Helium uses 850-fill—the highest count available. And for those who crave the minimalist properties of down but worry about using it in wet conditions like, say, on canoe trips, the Helium MemBrain’s waterproof-breathable outer shell solves the problem, protecting the fill from insulation-killing wetness while still allowing the down to puff up. Sleep under the stars without worrying about condensation and dew. With weight reduction and warmth in mind, the narrow mummy shape cuts down on bulk while the trapezoidal foot box and cozy hood provide extra comfort. This is the perfect option for no-compromise, light-packing trippers who paddle during shoulder seasons.

15 °F (-9 °C); 2 lbs 5 oz (1050 g); 12” x 6”; 850-fill Down
